2023 Disaster Relief - California Flooding Fund


Still reeling from storms on New Year’s Eve, California has continued to face additional rounds of severe storms as a result of multiple atmospheric rivers forming off the US west coast. Record-breaking heavy precipitation and strong winds have caused severe flooding and power outages, and damaged homes, businesses and infrastructure. At least 18 deaths have been blamed on the storms; Millions of Californians remain under flood watches, and thousands of people across multiple counties have been ordered to evacuate their homes. Cisco Foundation has launched a $25K California Flooding disaster campaign campaign which will support American Red Cross, Destination: Home, and World Central Kitchen. Employee gifts up to $10,000 will be matched and will not count against your annual $25K match allowance.
